The North Wales-based developer is to start construction of 132 homes on 22 acres south of Wrexham later this year.
Outline planning permission was originally granted in 2015 to Wynnstay Farming Co for the development of land known as the Ruabon Business Park, 61 acres to the west of the A483.
The scheme proposed an Aldi supermarket and petrol filling station, which have been delivered.
In addition, a residential development comprising up to 319 homes also formed part of Wynnstay Farming’s application.
Wrexham Council has now granted Pure Residential & Commercial permission to deliver the first tranche of homes, comprising a mix of apartments and two-, three- and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached houses.
An application for the remaining 187 homes, to be located across 19 acres, is to be submitted in due course.
Chris White, managing director of Pure Residential & Commercial, said: “This exciting development will bring many benefits to the local area and will help boost the economy with many jobs being created both directly and indirectly.
“Pure will be increasing its recruitment drive over the coming months for a diverse range of roles and will also hold a local jobs fair to attract local tradespeople to work on the development.”
Calderpeel Architects designed the scheme and The Planning Consultancy advised on planning.
Later phases of the project include an eight-unit industrial scheme on land to the west of the residential development.
